    Question about "Overwrite Settings"

    OK, now that I know the difference between Save and Save As, I have a question about this pop up. Because I want my edited photos on a different hard drive and in a different folder than in my LR catalog, I always open them via Lightroom into Photoshop, and then when I’m finished editing I use...

    Question about "Save" verses "Save As"

    Thanks to all. I understand it now. I'll keep my present workflow: Camera-LR-open in PS as Smart Object-edit-Save As. Any revisits to the photo with new changes, "Save" which will keep the same name and location.

    Question about "Save" verses "Save As"

    Thank you. I think I understand now. So, if I want to keep my edited PSD/Tiff files in a separate folder, there is no real reason to use Save instead of Save As, since using Save As avoids having to drag and drop an image to get it where you want.

    Question about "Save" verses "Save As"

    I think I have a basic misunderstanding about the "Save" function in Photoshop/Lightroom. After importing new RAW photos into LR, my workflow has been to open the photo as a Smart Object in Photoshop, make my edits, then "Save As". I prefer to keep my edited photos separate from the original RAW...

    Thanks for the suggestions. I still would like to understand better what is going on with the exclamation point/pop up window routinue. If I revisit an image in Photoshop and make some changes and press "Save" those changes immediately appear in Lightroom. Are those changes not then stored in...

    How to make "Overwrite Settings" automatice

    I make pixel copies of all my edited photos (Canon CR2 raws to PSD) using "Save As" in PS and store them on an external hard drive. I frequently open photos again (via Lightroom) and make addition changes then use "save", again in PS. It seems like the changes automatically get sent to LR, but...

    Can't get photo date to appear in Custom Metadata

    I can't get the date infoto appear in the metadata panel. I choose Default then press the Customize button. When I check Date and Capture Date the info line appears in the scroll down but there is no information in the rectangular box. Mac OS 11.6, Lightroom 12.0.1, Canon 5d IV. See screen capture:

    LR and my Epson P900 will not print correct margins

    I made a print using LR and my Epson P900. The paper size is 17x25 (Custom Size created by me, Margins "User Defined"). The settings in the print module (listed in order from top to bottom) were Single Image, no Image Settings were checked. All Margins 0.50 inch, Cell Spacing greyed out, Cell...

    How to stop Documents and folders other than Photos from appearing in the Catalog on the left in Library mode

    I recently got a new Mac Studio M1 (Yay!) and manually moved my LR catalog. All is well except now lots of new folders are appearing in the Catalog list of my drives on the left, like Documents, iTunes media, Movies, Videos, etc. How do I stop these from showing up in LR?

    No ICC profile for Epson Ultra Premium Luster is available for Lightroom Classic (Mac)

    I haven't printed in a very long time with my Epson P 900, and after several Mac updates found Ultra Premium Luster and many other Epson ICC profiles missing in both Photoshop and LR. I re installed the print driver, specifically not choosing Airprint. Quite a few ICC profiles were still missing...

    On import from camera LR has started adding -2 to file name

    Thanks for the response. I added the year dates for this post, they are not part of the file names. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks for the suggestion, but I have close to 100,000 photos sorted by location (no date folders) which has worked well for me. Creating date named folders to avoid...

    On import from camera LR has started adding -2 to file name

    Thanks. Here is what I found in LR/Hard drive name/Photos: many photos with the same file name, listed in chronologic order: _X0A2935.CR2 2016 _X0A2935.CR2 2017 _X0A2935.CR2 2019 _X0A2935-2CR2 2019 _X0A2935.CR2 2021 _X0A2935-2CR2 2021 So it seems my operating...

    On import from camera LR has started adding -2 to file name

    I recently imported about 300 photos from the memory card taken out of my Canon 5d IV, and LR has added -2 to the file name of all the photos, for example, _XOA2935 becomes -X0A2938-2. I can't figure out why this has started and would like to get rid of it. Please help....thanks!

    Import Can no longer import photos

    Always when LR is buggy, the first thing to do is reset your preferences. Google it to find out how to do it with your operating system.

    Switching photos to a new hard drive

    Thanks. I started over. Erased and reformatted the new drive and then cloned it again and changed the names as you suggested. This time it worked fine.

    Switching photos to a new hard drive

    Thanks. I tried doing that, but for some unexplical reason most of the photos show up but about 10% have no thumbnail image and the dreaded question mark indicating that the original files cannot be found. Any suggestions?

    Switching photos to a new hard drive

    My boot drive is a 1 TB drive on a 2013 Mac Pro (OS 11.5). My photos are located on a spinning external hard drive. I have a new external SSD hard drive and have cloned my external spinning drive onto the SSD. I want the SSD and its contents to be in LR and get rid of the spinning hard drive...

    Canon R5 Camera Profiles Workaround?

    Regarding profiles, this is a facinating article by Tony Kuyper on what is actually going on with the different profiles and why you should rethink which profile to use. The whole idea of using raw is to get all of the unedited data available from the shot and then do your own editing. Most of...

    Buying a new iMac - How much RAM?

    The new silicone M1 chips have changed the rules for RAM. It seems like the new models will require less RAM than the old Intel models to get the same effect. How much RAM in an M1 model equals an amount of RAM in an Intel model is not clear yet. But it sure seems that less is needed.

    How to stop "Save as" in Photoshop also saving to Lightroom?

    I want them separated because I spend a lot of time browsing my RAW files folders looking for old photos to edit. Having PSD files of edited photos just makes the browsing more difficult for us ADD types.

    How to stop "Save as" in Photoshop also saving to Lightroom?

    My usual workflow: import photos into LR in a file called "RAW Originals". When I find a photo a want to work on I go to Photo/Edit in/Open as Smart Object in Photoshop. When I am done editing in Photoshop I choose PSD and "Save as" and pick the location to save, in my case an external drive...
